Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Hi fellow bloggers and a special welcome to anyone who has found their way here by way of the Crafty Boots Challenges website.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges, for the next two weeks the very talented Faye has chosen the theme of "Yellow",  so let your imagination go wild and conjure up some bright, beautiful, sunny images.

Here is what the word yellow said to me:

This fabulously cute little girl is from Mo's Digital Pencil and she is called Savannah.

When I looked at my Promarkers I realised that I have a lot of yellows, so I was able to give her a bright yellow outfit.  The papers are all from Dovecraft and the sentiment is from Crafty Art.  Finally, the little daisies are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The rest of the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team have made some amazing tags and cards and I urge you to pop over and take a peek.

......... oh and don't forget to share your yellow creations with the rest of us.



  1. Ah she's gorgeous! Must get her, because my niece is called Savannah! Fab colouring, and design. Zo xx

  2. What a cheeky design! Love the little chicks! This looks like you loved every minute of making it!

  3. I have to say this card really brightness up any grey day. I love yellow but have not used it much myself in crafting yet. I have a lot of yellows in my promarkers too. If I had flexmarkers I would probably have even more yellows! Love the image and they way you coloured it. Fingers crossed for your laptop. I find my laptop the least reliable thing in my whole household !!
